A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
Last Stop on the L Train: Detroit is the new Brooklyn. "It is now well-documented that some of Brooklyn’s much-written-about creative class is being driven out of the borough by high prices and low housing stock . . . Detroit’s empty industrial spaces, community-based projects, experimental art scene and innovative design opportunities beckon." [The New York Times]
Is it time to rethink the selfie as a feminist political statement? "While the selfie is often vilified as at best benign, and at worst, vapid and narcissistic, we’ve seen evidence of its positive power." [GOOD Magazine]
From ocean garbage to sporty sneakers. "A new Adidas collaboration aims to recycle ocean waste into shoes." [CityLab/The Atlantic]
Washington DC's Chinatown has only 300 Chinese-Americans left, and they're fighting to stay. "If what is left of Chinese Chinatown is to be saved, more needs to be done to bridge cultural divides in a neighborhood that is now more 'Ann Taylor than Asian.'" [The Washington Post]
